First impressions? Tootdon is *way* better than Tusky.

@deadsuperhero Well it's an incredibly useful thing to be doing - keep it up!

Freedom means freedom over time as well. Any open source offering that uses a file format that can't be viewed and edited from a 10 year old device in one way or another, or that will be unreadable 10 years from now, is badly designed in my opinion.

I did it. Quit Facebook. I had many personal reasons, but philosophically, what moved me was Aral Balkan’s critique based on cyborg ontology and theory of surveillance capitalism. This, combined with a vision for decentralized planetary democracy, combined also w/ @Rushkoff's point about it just not being nice to your friends to link them there (like poor hygiene, or knowingly spreading a disease) finally broke my inertia.

This article sums up the argument well: ar.al/notes/encouraging-indivi ~ @aral

@Antanicus This article seems to sum up the happenings on the ground pretty well: wsws.org/en/articles/2017/09/2

As for echoes, seeing footage of Madrid's heavy-handed militaristic response so far (with numerous tanks being brought in by train), it certainly feels like it. Only time will tell what shit's about to go down, though it doesn't feel good

I just found out about #gitprint! If you open any markdown file on github.com, you can change the URL from github.xyz to gitprint.xyz and a lovely FLOSS app will render it into printable A4 form, nice πŸ˜€ However, there's no support for gitlab 😟 The issue was raised over a year ago: github.com/adamburmister/gitpr

Any takers?
